Mods really dont add to cars value. Km's are not too high which is good. I would have said 2.5-3K max for the car. Eg For things like just a belt not having the aircon working means a bit to others and as such i would consider this car as not having aircon.

You also havent commented on rego. This can be a decent chunk of its usable value too.

If you get more than that then well done :)

Good luck with the sale.

Looks like I won't be parting with it as the guy packed out of the deal (was for a single turbo 1jz cressida).
In a sense I'm happy as I haven't had the chance to really enjoy it at the level it's at.
Might chuck in the wideband sensor just to keep an eye on everything.
If anyone is interested in buying, let me know!

Unfortunately Chris/Gtaye has talked me into getting this thing going.
Just bought the DMWDave HD box with the PG LSD.
Trying to get the flywheel off currently but can't seem to get it - any ideas? (harmonic balancer isn't working for me as the bolt on that end slips first and I don't have a rattle gun.
Any suggestions on removing the flywheel? May just put a screwdriver in but so many people talk against it as it snaps teeth off

try cutting a 50-100mm diameter steel pipe in half to form a half cirle, then lodge the resultant ends in two sets of flywheel teeth and brace against belhousing bolt.

Failing that attach the right sized spanner or socket such that it alignes slightly raised above the center of the flywheel and hit with a hammer... in the direction to undo the bolts... the angle of the tool across the face of the flywheel and angle of the hit needs to be right to use the mass of the engines recipricating parts to work against the blow of the hammer. Will work 80 percent of the time. the other 20 percent will be 10 percent turning the engine, or 10 percent rounding the bolt or bending the spanner.

Na.. she'll be right wont snap s**t..
Just get a nice fat screw driver
Slide it inbetween the teeth of the flywheel somewhere on the right hand side (can remember which exact channel it slides onto on the block) but you will see which one locks the best..
Get a rachet with a 17mm socket (no extension)
Get the pole off your jack and slide it onto the handle of your rachet..

Get a mate to hold the screw driver nice and steady to stop it from slipping out
But u can do this solo as well
Its so easy..

Cheers boys, luckily Gtaye and one of the others on here (I forget his username) got in touch with me on Facebook and I went with one of their ideas which was to put a screwdriver between two of the dowels and put the jack handle over the end and had it under the steering rack (or there abouts).
Breaker barred the bolts off.
Do you leave the semicircle thing with the five front bolts and two underneath from the sump to remove main seal? Just pry it out with a screwdriver?

please tell me you're not working under the car with only a scissor jack holding it up!

Totally agree!

Glad to see this isn't over just yet!

With the Flywheel, when I had mine removed my mechanic showed me a trick. You need a long bolt that matches up to the ones on the box next to the edge of the flywheel and a short piece of metal aboutt he same thickness and width as a metal ruler. Take the bolt and get it started in the thread, then take the piece of metal and put in place between the teeth on the gearbox with the other side touching the bolt thread. Then tighten the bolt until it hold the metal in place. If its done up tight enough you won't have to do anything else other than leverage off the bolts! :)

After trying everything under the sun for 3/4 of a day in my shed this took my mechanic under 5 minutes including finding a bolt that matched the thread on the box and the piece of scrap metal!

Definitely not haha. Car is securely on stands. Scissor jack is to support the motor.

Cannot get this oil seal out - anyone want to throw ideas at me?

You undo the housing that the oil seal sits in..
5 10mm bolts and two underneath on the sump..
Taking the housing off with a flat head because it will prob be stuck..
Bash the old seal out with anything u feel like using lol..

Thanks man!
Got it off :) Excited to get it going again as we've just got the skyline back on the road with a 2way diff. Feels so good to drive. Very graceful and predictable. If anyone on here has something performancey and rwd get a diff haha

Hopefully the gasket for the rear main seal housing will arrive tomorrow and I can finally get started. If it does I'll get the freshly machined flywheel in, clutch in etc. Would be even luckier if my gearbox arrived tomorrow as well and I could hopefully have it running on the weekend.

Just use 3 bond, I never use gaskets there.

I personally don't like that stuff as I'm always skeptical about getting it even/not built up more in some places and causing 'leaks' however it woulnd't be an issue in that location. Cheers for your input anyway.

Gasket arrived but gearbox didn't :(
So over the weekend hopefully I'll get clutch/flywheels in and get everything prepared for when the gearbox arrives. Not too sure how much I'll get done though as I've got a big week ahead with hopefully a life changing job opportunity

Started today - After putting the housing back on I had an issue with a bolt ruining the threads however I rectified that and then manage to snap two bolts before even reaching the specified torque. :/
Quick question though, I've got the rear main seal sitting 2mm inset from the outside of the housing, and pretty much flush with the inside, is that how it should be sitting?
cheers!
